In Elbow Lake I've found the combination of landscape to housing, wildlife to people, and services to opportunities that convinced me to move there. I've lived and worked in cities most of my life, from Vienna, Austria to Minneapolis, MN. Over the past four years I've searched in cities and towns all over Minnesota, from Duluth to Orono for the perfect home. What surprised me was the variety of services and businesses already available in this small town. I found a library, museum, court house, grocery store, medical services, banks, decorators, hardware store, restaurants, post office, churches, second hand shops, gas stations and many more businesses within walking distance. This diamond in the rough is my idea of home, nestled between the lakes, farms and rolling prairie of Minnesota.
